DeForest Buckner (ribs/illness) active vs. Steelers

Indianapolis Colts defensive tackle DeForest Buckner is active for Monday Night Football against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Impact

Buckner was listed as questionable coming into tonight's game due to a rib injury and an illness. Buckner is a key piece of the Colts' defensive front and is even more important with players like Shaq Leonard, and Kwity Paye sidelined. Buckner is a DT1/DL2 option for the plus matchup against the Steelers.
